WHY CHOOSE ROCK UK?

We’ve been around since 1922 when a group of Sunday school teachers took a group of children, who had never had a holiday before, out of London on a healthy break to the south coast to improve their spiritual, mental and physical health.

Since then, we’ve grown into a thriving business welcoming over 60,000 visitors each year to our four adventure centres around the UK. Our ethos which is to bring adventure into learning in the outdoors, to transform lives, remains as true today as it has always been. We want kids to have lots of fun on activities whilst growing in confidence and self-esteem.

AN ACTION-PACKED COURSE

This is an action-packed adventure programme with on the job training. The full course is for two years although we also have a limited number of one year places available. Throughout the programme you will be learning and working at the same time, gaining essential experience in youth work and leading groups.

WORKING WITH LIKE-MINDED CHRISTIANS

The course is residential so you’ll be living, working and training together with other like-minded Christians, building friendships and making life-long memories.

Your time will be spent learning how to plan, run and instruct activity sessions such as kayaking, archery and high ropes and will help deliver the busy summer programme of activities.

COURSE ITINERARY

The course offers a good mix of faith, learning and adventure.

FAITH

It’s a faith-transforming, once in a lifetime opportunity. You’ll be engaged in a range of challenging outdoor activities and a series of workshops and seminars. You will learn to rely on God to sustain you physically, mentally and spiritually through challenging outdoor activities, workshops and Bible study. You’ll gain a greater understanding of yourself as a disciple of Christ.

LEARNING

We’re passionate about groups experiencing the power of the outdoors as an educational tool. Understanding how different people learn is essential to working with groups, so during your training you’ll explore learning in all its forms and acquire the skills needed to teach, lead and run activity sessions.

ADVENTURE

We’ll fuel your thirst for adventure with training in the Cairngorms in Scotland and the Gower or Snowdonia in Wales. You’ll grow stronger through the challenges you face and bring all you’ve learnt back to the young people on centre where you’ll develop your youth work skills by putting your training into practice.

IS THIS COURSE FOR ME?

How does kayaking, rock climbing or gorge walking, working with young people and leading adventure activity sessions, sound to you? Spend time camping under canvas with a bunch of new friends that feel like old mates, share testimonies of faith, study the Bible together and go on a life-changing journey with God.

You’ll need to have a servant heart and be prepared to put in hard work and devotion.

You won’t need any previous experience, just a love of the outdoors, a relationship with God you want to grow and a heart to see young peoples lives transformed.
